Oh, Gallagher.  Reviled and loathed by those of us that mistakenly switched to one of your specials on Showtime, and now you’ve been dissed by Comedy Central by being #100 on their top 100 comedians special.  While the list is interesting (Ellen Degeneres (16) is funnier than both Bill Hicks (19)? Gilbert Gottfried (59) is funnier than Eddie Izzard (75)? David Cross at #85? Blasphemy! ), more interesting is this recent interview with Gallagher in which he bemoans his lackluster fate and pisses on those who rose above him. 

Perhaps someone should point out to him that a) His brother was Gallagher..he’s technically a tribute act. and b) He’s not funny nor talented.

    What do you mean that his brother was Gallagher?

    The current Gallagher is the brother of the original Gallagher. Brother 1 sold the name, act, and shitty schtick to Brother 2.

    So Gallagher is like The Phantom?

    Yah, but instead of fighting crime, Gallagher commits crimes against humanity.
